Hi no, its a modern japanese machine im afraid, Baroness LM180, great mower i like it, very similar to the National, i wouldnt be surprised if it was based on it. I like the efficiency of it, doesnt use much fuel, very stable on slopes, has 3 gears and a diff lock, cuts large areas very quickly, only downside i guess is the cost of sharpening it...

This is my main grass cutter 18hp, 60" deck, does a good job, in heavy grass a little under powered, and the least amount of trimming needed after.

This is what I use if I'm in a hurry, 32hp, 60" deck, the fastest, not as good a job and lot's of trimming needed after.

This has been the backup mower, (left one), 12hp, 42" deck does a good job, not much trimming after, but is slow compared to the other 3.

This is the latest, 16hp, 48" deck, lots of power at the blades, does a good job, minimal trimming, faster than the 42", slower than the 60" but in long heavy grass just as fast as the main grass cutter (first picture).

I have 1 gas push mower in the garage, bought it at a garage sale 7or8 yrs ago, don't know if it runs, never tried to start it, just don't need it.

Of all my tractors, this is the only one strictly dedicated to mowing. Actually, trimming. The 32 inch deck allows it to go where no rider has gone before, at least none of my larger tractors. Bought it for $100 with a self ventilated 8 hp Briggs(rod through the block) and transplanted a 12 hp Briggs I had sitting around, so I guess it's actually a 212-3 wheelhorse now, not a 208-3 as the hood decals would lead you to believe. I sometimes wish it had a larger deck, it mows really nice. And before anyone asks, nope, she ain't for sale!

This is my dedicated grass mower! I used to mow with my Wheel Horse 314-8, but this cuts in 1/3 the time and leaves me more time to play! Sorry that's the best pic I have of it.

a golf cart company on line, i got them for my small utility trailer but the hubs stuck out to far, so i had to do something with them...... they do not have them in 6" size, only 8"and 10". im thinking of getting 2 10" and putting them on the back of the snapper and taking the 8" and putting them on the front of the snapper
